By web gangsta | Published:

First – before you read any further, if you have either enjoyed the celebrity ICE BUCKET CHALLENGE videos or have participated in making a video yourself…. and if you have not already made a donation to ALS – then GO IMMEDIATELY TO THE ALS WEBSITE AND MAKE THAT DONATION.

And don’t think that just because you didn’t dump a bucket of ice on your head in the name of raising awareness for a charity that’s fighting the good fight for thousands of people, if you laughed even once at the antics of anyone who did do it – you owe ALS money.

The WORST YouTube Videos, Ever


By web gangsta | Published:

You know how you have all your friends sharing with you the most awesome VIRAL VIDEO that they’ve seen today?

Don’t you hate it when those viral videos that they think are awesome are some video that you’ve seen, like, TWO MONTHS AGO?
